Morocco: HM the King Orders Immediate Setting Up of Moroccan Field Hospital in Gaza Strip

Marrakech  — HM King Mohammed VI ordered the immediate setting up of a Moroccan field hospital in the Gaza strip, spokesperson of the palace Abdelhak Lamrini said on Sunday in a statement.

Following the recent tragic events in the Gaza strip and in accordance with the spirit of solidarity driving all components of the Moroccan Nation towards the brotherly Palestinian people, HM King Mohammed VI gave his orders to immediately set up a Moroccan field hospital in the Gaza strip, he said.

The hospital will be composed of specialized medical units of the Royal Armed Forces, as well as Moroccan civilian physicians and paramedics.

The multidisciplinary medical-surgical hospital will be at the service of Palestinians and will reinforce existing medical capacities.

Through this humanitarian initiative, Morocco intends to contribute to easing the sufferings of a population that have become, for several days now, the victim of military attacks flatly denounced by the kingdom and the international community.

HM the King ordered that this humanitarian initiative be implemented imminently and in coordination with Palestinian authorities.
